    I am getting dsl from verizon. The activate date is oct 19 but I noticed I
    get dsl light on when i tried to connect it today but did not work on the
    computer . Does this mean it should be working since the green light is
    lite??? I noticed when I received this packet it came msn 8 software it
    tells me I have to load the software with the msn on it. Can I keep my
    internet explorer 6.0 instead of using the msn?? I tried today to activate
    my dsl but I did not get a responce on thecomputer even though the light was
    green. I have win 98 2nd edition. Should I put a IP address in or dns in ??
    can anyone explain how inportant it is to use the filters. ?? I realize I
    will get noise or static on the telphone line but will this prevent the DSL
    from working if I do not put it on ??? Is one filter ok to use for all the
    phones when the wire comes in I will use the splitter and filter , than I
    can go directly to the dsl modem . Is this OK. Thanks to all in advance for
    your time, and promptness.

    If you don't follow the directions that came with your equipment it will not
    work. You need a filter on all lines connected to a telephone.

    It should be working, however you might have to connect via PPoE which
    will require authentication. Did you get a user/password combo?
    You *might* have to load the software if it does the PPoE
    authentication. Otherwise no, you don't have to.
    You should probably set the network settings to use WINS.

    If you have a filter that connects at the telephone NID (gray box
    outside) that will suffice, and is better than putting individual
    filters at each phone. Also if you have a monitored alarm system
    there are issues with that as well. Be sure to TEST the alarm.

  4. The software won't work until your active date.

    Also, don't put a filter on the phone line that connects to the DSL modem.
